These guys are running around the house causing trouble.

I caught them trying to play with the spinning wheel.

Touring the State Capital with Daddy.

We spent an afternoon touring the Capital building in Saint Paul. It is a beautiful building and the history of it is fascinating.

This last weekend was our HSLT  (high school leadership training). We spent the weekend in Northfield at the collage with almost 200 teens and adult leaders. It was lots of fun, great small group times, way too little sleep and lots of food.

Hubby's brother was here last week from California. We spent the week running around, playing games, And had a family picnic on Sunday. This was the first time the family has been together since Mom's funeral almost 13 years ago. He also worked with Bitty on the tramp and got her doing front flips again.

 We had a great time having him here. It was hard to say goodbye when he went home.

The girls are enjoying having time off from school. They are sleeping in, reading and on occasion, working in the yard.

My white roses and pink peonies are blooming and smell wonderful. It is so nice to have blooming flowers in front of the house. I just bought a white peony, so I should have that blooming in a couple years.

Mom and I made soap when we were down there a couple weekends ago to see Grandma and Grandpa. It was lots of fun and now I am getting inpatient to use  it. I made another small batch today with coconut milk. It is sitting on the front porch cooling, and will have to get cut up and stored for a while also.

In the knitting corner I made a hat and am working on mittens and scarf that match. I finished the baby blankets that I designed. They turned out really nice. I am working on designing another sweater.

I am also spinning up some really pretty green yarn for a summer shawl, but it will take me a while before it is off the wheel.

We spent the weekend with friends and family at the Wilderness Fellowship Ministry  for the Memorial Day Family Fun Weekend. Everyone had a lot of fun and got a little bit sun burnt. I forgot my camera, but Hubby took some pictures with his phone that I will have to get later. There were lots of activities and some Family Olympic games.

We had rain off and on  Friday and a storm on Sunday night. The girl’s tent got wet during the storm and the awning for the camper needs some repair.

We came home Monday afternoon after packing up all the wet stuff in the camper. We brought some of our friends’ stuff home in the camper since one of their cars broke down and they had to stuff all five of them (2 large teenagers included) in their car.

I got the laundry done, camper cleaned out , organized,  and all the wet stuff dried and put away today.

The girls are almost done with their school work for the year. They have 2 more day left…. J

Bubba got her thumb smashed in the car this morning coming home from church. We heard this little owww … that hurt…. and we knew it had to be bad for her to say something. She had tears running down her face and was holding her thumb, which was dripping blood at this point…. We doctored her up and got her an ice pack and put her in the recliner with some ibuprofen.  This time it is her right hand, last time ( about 3 years ago) it was her left. Now she will have matching thumbs with dents in them.

She is now running around playing again… but it got her out of yard work for the day so she is helping me make cookies. Nothing makes an owweee feel better than a warm cookie.

 

We had a great Mother’s day. Mom and Dad came up for the weekend. We went to the Sheppard’s Harvest Festival again. We took both camera’s and nobody took any pictures of course. We had a great time and the weather was really nice.

I have gotten some spinning done and lots of knitting. I made a baby blanket with the leftover white from the baby dress. Some socks for a friend and some baby socks. I am now working on some mittens and another pair of socks for Christmas. I am starting early on Christmas stuff again this year. I want to get socks and sweaters done for the girls again this year.

Cookies are done and I am heading out to work in the yard and enjoy the sunshine.

This morning Bitty and I are cleaning out the freezer. We have some beef coming and have to make room for it. It is amazing what you can find in the bottom of your freezer. We spent an  hour this morning and wile spend some more time on it this afternoon. I think the next few days will be filled with meals that are a surprise. There is always stuff that gets thrown in there with no label and has to be thawed out to find out what it is.

I also spent some time organizing and bleaching my washcloths this morning. They are looking really grey and I hope the bleach will help. If not, they will become rags.

The weather is starting to get really nice and sunny. All the plants are starting to come up. I have 3 little lilac plants that are not coming back and one spirea bush that didn’t come back, but it looks like most of the baby lilacs and other bushes I moved last year made it.

Snow

It’s not April 1st , it’s the 16th and we have snow.  It is 34 degrees and we have about an inch of snow on the ground.

This does not look like spring.

I know it's been awhile since I last logged on. I really didn't mean to be gone this much but somehow I've been able to find all sorts of things to do instead of blogging.

We seem to be busy every night with something. And almost every week has stuff during the school day also.

The days seem so busy and again it is bedtime and my list is not done and I have a pile of laundry on my bed.  The good news is I now have gotten a movie on my iPod, so I can do fold cloths while trying watching a mini screen (I have to try to add some fun to the chores). It only took me a week of trying to actually get the movie to work on the iPod. Some days I really hate computers.

We have had a really busy month again.

We had the church couples confence and loved it. Fabulous speeker and fabulous friends.

The girls have been busy with school work, co-op, field trips ( We went up to the MOA for rides), lunch with friends and art classes.

Valentines Day we stayed home and hubby fixed dinner and brought me roses. We had fish, crabcakes, asparagus and carmelized brussel srouts. I made hubby a quilted blanked with some airline blankets we had.

Hubby got the Explorer fixed and running. We bought it before Christmas to fix. It was an auction vehicle that was in an accident. It needed a new backend and some other things. He just got it done yesterday.

I have been keeping my self busy with knitting (mittens and socks), spinning (mom got me some alpaca to make her socks) and Quilting(with the church group and one of my own).

The mittens are for Christmas (if I don’t start now I will never get everything done before Christmas) next year.

It has started snowing again now. The weather last week was low 40’s and now it is 20 again with about 18-20 inches of snow expected with wind. It’s a good thing we get to stay home this morning.

I have gotten the next quilt top done. It is another Christmas quilt.

I have been doing some knitting and some sewing, and as always lots of running around with Hubby to Dr's Appointments.

The girls are almost done with the 1st half of the school year. This year has gone by really fast.

Christmas


Christmas was really nice this year. We went to Church on Christmas Eve and then had dinner and opened some presents. Tasha even got something to open. Christmas Day we opened more presents (From Santa) and got ready to go.




We went to Mark and Yvonne's for the day. Every one was there including and extra friend.
The kids went sliding and played in the snow and the adults cooked and talked.
We ate and played games and stayed until really late.




New Years Eve we went to a friends house for the Sledding party (and food) and then over to another friends house for games (and more food).
New Years day we slept in and watched movies and played games and had pizza.. We went to see the new Narnia movie. It was really good and the girls loved it of course.


I also figured out why I don't post very often. This little post has taken me way too long to get done. Every time I add a picture I have to rearrange everything again and Getting pictures on here is a pain in the bum.....The photos from my phone turn out blurry and sideways, so that doesn't work either.
This year I will try to post more, but I will have to try to figure out an easier way to get photo's on here.
